The hotel is clean, neat. Room we stayed in was awesome but a bit busy as it was on the corner but besides that - the view to the sea was fantastic. Food was very good both at SEGALA and SENSU. The bar on the beach was fantastic for lunch and to listen to music at night.

It took an hour to check into the hotel. There wasn't a queue. And it took an hour to check into the hotel. After traveling overnight and having a flight delay, this wasn't the welcome I expected checking into a 5-star resort. But the staff insisted that we pay before checking in

As a South African is my drivers license valid in Mauritius or do i need an international drivers license?
tourists are allowed to drive for upto 4 weeks with a valid driving licence Mauritius is a country that recognizes the Geneva Road Traffic Convention of 1949 and the law stipulates: “Any person holding a valid International Driving Permit or Driving Licence issued by a competent foreign authority shall not be required to pass a test. Any such permit or licence shall entitle the holder thereof to drive within the State of Mauritius any vehicle of the types specified thereon.” (Sections 57 and 59 of Road Traffic Regulations 1954).

Hello I'm trying to book a family room for 3 adults and 1 teenager from August 31st to September 4th but I want to pay at the hotel since I'm here in Mauritius Can I come today and pay ? Thanks
If you are in Mauritius I would suggest you give them a call so you don’t waste time going there and they do not have any room . Also if any member of your family is Mauritian you might as well check the deal on marideal but always compare against the hotel price itself and websites like booking or hotel or trivago . Sometimesu get better deals and they way cheaper . Hope this answers your questions .

"Something closer to the hotel lobby"
"As all the rooms are Ocean view. So go for the room on higher floors as it will give nice ocean view compared to rooms on lower floors."
"room near the south infinity pool are quieter"
"Room on 1st floor a bit noisy"
"If you have trouble moving around, consider requesting for a room closer to the lobby and restaurants."
